I was flipping through a few old photographs this evening, and came across a picture I took a few Christmases ago. I was visiting my family in Florida, and my sister and I made these festive cupcakes:
I had forgotten about these, and seeing them jarred a few memories loose in my brain. As the various images bubbled up to my conscious mind, I smiled, remembering the fun I had with her during that trip.
In the next moment, a memory from just this morning appeared: It was of my one-year-old niece, looking at a picture of Santa. We were teaching her what various things say, and in her tiny-little-girl voice, she parroted back a high-pitched, giggly, “ho, ho, ho!”
What fun ladies I have in my life. : )
